I wonder what the ratio of finished to unfinished canvasses/projects I have laying around is.

Probably about 9 out of 10.

Nothing finished since graduating college, that's durn sure.

Also, I'm on a great Yahoo! Group for organizing for the artist... there's mostly scrapbookers, but they certainly do have a TON OF ART to organize, and it's great for motivation to either DO stuff or CLEAN stuff.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OrganizedStudio/

And for those of you interested in not-so-traditional crafts/media/etc. I've got a community (it's only got like, four people and I think I'm the only one who's posted, so this doesn't really count as advertising, does it?)

It's hardcorecrafts --

My usericon is a disembodied BRATZ doll head (it came that way... bodiless, I mean) that I ... zombified. I have pupaphobia (puppet fear) and have been working with dolls to work my way up to puppets to maybe get over it. We'll see if that ever happens.

Re: motivation? What's that?

Yeah, the group was just created as a response to some other groups on LJ that I belonged to that flipped out when serious questions regarding more subjective materials were asked (such as bones, skeletons, preservation of insects, etc.).

I wouldn't get too worked up about fitting into some concept, as it's just an LJ community, and there's not much of anything going on there yet anyway. :)

Thanks for joining, btw.

I also have a REALLY hard time getting motivated. I had a studio in my last home for over a year and did nothing in it but sit on the computer... (and store my stuff).

One of the best motivators I've found is postcrossing.com It's a postcard exchange thingy where you sign up and get some addresses, send them postcards and you get some in return... I make most of my postcards (I'm cheap) and it's a non-judgmental venue... it doesn't really matter what it looks like since it's going to a stranger, and it's a good small format, so it's not overwhelming, and you have an essentially limited time to do it in, so it's a good little thing to do. I also like it because doing postcards gives me a good excuse to play with all the fun art stuff I got to motivate myself and did nothing with. :)

Re: motivation? What's that?

Awesome about not fitting into a concept for your Livejournal Group. I went and signed up for a Deviant Art site. I don't have a ton of stuff on there, but here's the link: http://pandorasfilth.deviantart.com

I'm looking forward to chatting in your group.
